Having the CTO home from yeshiva for bein hazmanim (yeshiva vacation) means that:
- I can start using emoticons again…
- He spent the day whipping up… not one, not two, not three, but - count 'em! - four batches of Pesach rolls. (Kol hakavod!)
may have mentioned in passing never let YZG forget, we don’t eat gebrochts.
However, as I noted in my original gebrochts post:
“We’re not fanatic about no gebrochts. Basically, the only thing we avoid is matzah mixed with water. Other liquids are fine. For instance, [we] make Pesach rolls with not-from-concentrate orange juice…”
These rolls taste best when warmed up in the microwave and served with generous amounts of butter and are also good for taking along on chol hamo’ed trips.
- ¼ cup oil
- 1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed or not-from-concentrate)
- ¾ tsp salt
- 2.5 TBSP sugar
- 1¾ heaping cups matzah meal
- 4 eggs
- 2 heaping tsp kosher l’Pesach baking powder (i.e. one envelope for my Israeli readers)
Put oil, juice, salt, and sugar in a pot, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and immediately add the matzah meal. (Have it prepared in advance.) Mix well with a heavy wooden spoon. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well between each addition. Add baking powder and mix through.
Make out rolls (using dry hands), and place on baking-paper lined pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
Yields: 10-12 rolls. Freezes well.
